Typically, dental insurance benefits do not roll over. If you don’t use them by the end of the year, they are lost forever. And you miss opportunities to get covered dental work. Wouldn’t it be excellent to start off in January with a clean bill of health and that year’s benefits intact?
Your dentist in Palatine, IL, always encourages patients to take full advantage of their insurance coverage so they can afford the dental care they need all year long.
Using Your Dental Insurance in Palatine, IL
We are always happy to bill insurance providers that allow you to choose your own dentist. We want to see that you are adequately reimbursed. We also offer third-party financing through Lending Club and run periodic patient specials to help you save or budget your dental care.
If you would like a team member to help you navigate the language of your policy, or if you have questions about your coverage—seeing an out-of-network dentist, for example—we are glad to assist you.
Ways to Use Your End-of-the-Year Dental Benefits
Many patients use their dental benefits for checkups and teeth cleanings. Most insurance policies allow for two preventive dental appointments per year. So, if you have only been to see us once this year or not at all, we encourage you to schedule today.
If you have a concerning oral health issue—sore in the mouth, cracked tooth, broken restoration, etc.—you can book a consultation today, allowing you to keep next year’s benefits intact.
Another way to use your benefits is to arrange a consultation for dental work, including tooth replacement, if it is a covered benefit.
